So about 5 gallons of primer and two coats of paint later (nevermind the drama of clinging like a spider monkey to the ceiling and ladder to paint around the ceiling fan, since the previous owners puttied the fan cover to the ceiling.) and a lot of new accessories, I finally had a diningroom I wanted to eat in.
I was able to extend my dining table to its full length (can seat 10), and couldn't believe how large the room really is. I guess that vomit color threw off my spacial recognition.
Such a brighter, happier room. Even if Thor thinks it looks "pinkish". hahaha.
